Pooja Bhatt may be a star of the yester years but she sure has a few reflections to make in 2018. The star posted a scintillating picture from her golden days on Instagram and openly hinted at cocaine abuse in Bollywood. Bhatt is the first person from the industry to openly talk about the use of drugs. The topic for a long time has remained hushed despite stars promoting physical and mental fitness.
Been there,done that,bought and sold the t shirt. And these were the days where gyms were not temples and cocaine not passed around as a means to validate yourself,cut fat or get laid. These were simple times with no photoshop nor bullshit. Our bodies or lack of them were by the by. Personality ruled and still exists. My dear friend Sumeet Chopra shot this and it was the first outdoor shoot @dabbooratnani assisted him on. I still cant forget the expression on Dabboo’s face when he walked in and saw Sumeet rip a t shirt in half and ask me to wear it. #flashback #beentheredonethat #notricks #whatyouseeiswhatyouget #SumeetChopra #photoshoot #funtimes #authentictimes #funaboveall #itsnevertheactbuttheattitude
The star pointed out at the rampant use of cocaine in the industry despite actors turning gyms into temples. But it seems like gym worshipping does not come without the cocaine offering. While Bhatt did not mention any particular names in her post, choosing to generalize than name, it is interesting to know that her step-sister actress Alia Bhatt is an absolute gym freak who hits the gym religiously and even shares videos of her sweating it out from time to time.
Bhatt’s other sibling, Rahul Bhatt is one of Bollywood’s famed celebrity fitness trainer who sports beefy muscles and is considered to be the industry’s fitness model. But as per her words, “And these were the days where gyms were not temples and cocaine not passed around as a means to validate yourself, cut fat or get laid,” we can assume that all the muscles and abs that our glossy stars flash are not all blood and sweat put together.
Read the story of how one Mumbai drug-dealer was photographed with stars like Ranbir Kapoor and Salman Khan.While posting the sexy two piece picture, Bhatt also reflected on the use of photoshop to highlight a star. In her golden days, it was the personality that shone through and not digitally sculpted tummies. Her words come at a time when Bollywood strives hard to look picture perfect but possibly at a darker cost.
